Chilcott v Thermal Transfer Ltd: Admn 17 Jul 2009

The company had successfully appealed against a prohibition notice relating to its arrangements for working at height. By the time of the prohibition notice, it had implemented a plan satisfactory to the inspector.
Held: The tribunal had not focussed properly on the facts as at the inspector faced them, and had not give adequate regard to his expertise. He had been faced with a need for the supervision of the work. His notice should be amended accordingly, but in view of the arrangements, the notice should be cancelled.
